    March 16, 2015

    The Government of Japan has provided US$ 185,425  (Rs.24 million approx.) grant for the ‘Project for Improving Educational Environment of Kilinochchi Primary School under its Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Project (GGP).


    The project aims at construction of a two-storied building and improving sanitation facilities.  It is also expected to improve the teaching skill of teachers by conducting  a series of teacher’s training programs while conducting training programmes for parents in realizing children’s right to receive education under the proper environment.
    Japan provides its assistance to this project under the focus of ‘Development of Emerging Regions’ enshrined in the Country Assistance Policy for Sri Lanka. The Government of Japan believes that recovery of livelihood and economic growth of the people who live in poverty ridden areas, need to be complemented by addressing core issues like infrastructure rehabilitation. 
    An integrated approach in this nature will pave the way to reconciliation, durable peace and inclusive development in all parts of the country in the long run 
    Mr.Guido de Vries,  Country Director at ZOA Sri Lanka said that through these grants it will be possible to  ensure that children aged 0-5 years receive good quality early childhood care and development (ECCD) education and children aged 6-11 years receive good quality primary education through Child Friendly School Framework (CFS). 
    The Grant Contract was signed between Mr. Nobuhito Hobo, Ambassador of Japan and Mr. Guido de Vries Country Director at ZOA Sri Lanka today (16) at the Ambassador’s Residence in Colombo.
